Don't forget to vote on all of my Best of 2009 polls!
Funny ladies of the big screen always make me happy; they can roll with the best of the boys and manage to be completely captivating doing it. This year's romantic comedies and girl-power anthems gave Hollywood's women plenty of chances to be silly, so let me know who you thought was the funniest this year. And don't stop voting there — check the rest of my Best of 2009 polls!
It's Tuesday, which means your Netflix queue is about to get a bit fresher and longer. I've gone through today's new DVD and Blu-ray releases and have some recommendations for what you should rent next.
This Summer's super successful rom-com, The Proposal, stars Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds in a pretty predictable scheme (you know, girl proposes to boy to avoid deportation), but I enjoyed this surprisingly funny movie. I tend to like both Reynolds and Bullock in general, and their chemistry in this one is pretty irresistible. It was also an audience-pleaser, raking in enough money in ticket sales to make it one of the highest-grossing romantic comedies of all time.

While the Sandra Bullock/Ryan Reynolds romantic comedy The Proposal has been off my radar for weeks now, the movie has been quietly continuing to rake in the dough. Over the last weekend, the comedy's domestic sales reached $155 million, "bypassing the total domestic tally for Sex and the City." On the list of highest grossing romantic comedies of all time in North America (adjusted for inflation), Pretty Woman comes in at No. 1, and The Proposal is No. 19, just above Sex and the City, which is No. 20.
This makes me happy, since I liked The Proposal much more than the Sex and the City movie, though it also surprises me a little. Does it surprise you? Have you seen both films? Which do you think is better?
Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock made another stop on their promotional world tour for The Proposal yesterday, this time in Germany. The costars continued to make each other laugh for the cameras, and were even treated to flowers and balloons as they posed with director Anne Fletcher. The movie got knocked out of the number one spot by Transformers 2 last weekend, but Ryan and Sandra's big smiles should help make the film a success around the globe.

This past weekend I happened to catch The Proposal on the big screen, and as captivated as I was by the hilarious plot line, I couldn't help but take notice at Sandra Bullock's character — Margaret Tate's — cell phone obsession. A big executive editor-in-chief of a book publishing company, Margaret convinces her assistant (Andrew, played by Ryan Reynolds) to marry her so she won't get deported back to Canada.
During a trip to Alaska for his grandmother's 90th birthday party, Margaret's white Nokia E71 is stolen by a hawk (I know, sounds far-fetched, but it's such a funny scene), so she has Andrew order her a new phone. Although she keeps her smartphone (and Hermès handbag) glued to her for the first half of the movie, her new phone looks like a light pink iPod Nano (the E71 was nowhere in sight). . . I couldn't seem to make out the exact model. Suffice to say, it was a perfect fit for Bullock's character.

Michael Bay's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen earned a five-day opening gross of $201.2 million, easily taking the top spot at the weekend's box office. The sequel nearly beat the best five-day opening of all time, The Dark Knight, which earned $203.8 million. Second place went to The Proposal, followed by The Hangover in the third spot.
Pixar's Up came in at No. 4 and became the year's highest grossing movie. Finally, My Sister's Keeper starring Cameron Diaz and Abigail Breslin had a modest debut, earned about $12 million and coming in at No. 5.

Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock coordinated their outfits at a photo call for The Proposal in Madrid earlier today. As they start premiering the movie internationally, they can take pride knowing it debuted at the top spot at the box office last weekend. Ryan also has exciting news of his own to celebrate — he's been cast in a new film called Buried. The indie flick will be an interesting change of pace for Ryan, although many of you prefer his big blockbuster roles.
